I am so tired of reading reviews, and thought maybe someone can just give me advice based on MY needs. I am just a mom that loves taking pictures of her fast moving toddlers! (not a photographer, just avid picture taker.) I have a Nikon D90 that I LOVE. It's fast, so I can capture their quick changing expressions from laughter to tears (in seconds). I had a canon elph 3 years ago, and some kind of olympus point and shoot when the flash died on the canon. The elph wasn't quite fast enough, and the olympus always seemed to make my blonde son, more of a red head (strawberry at least).
Anyway, to my point, I am looking for a pocketable/pursable camera that will capture colors accurately, and is pretty quick at capturing the image. It needs to take the first picture fast, and let me take more pictures quickly. I am not a fan of burst mode, basically because you have to turn it on. I just want to pick up the camera and take lots of pictures. If you don't have kids, it takes like 20 shots to luck out with one where they are both smiling and one doesn't have a finger up the nose or some equally picture ruining action going on.... I want something for use when I don't feel like lugging the D90, 70 pounds of kids, and a diaper bag! So, small camera, fast action... I don't think the zoom will make a difference, since I can just use my SLR if I need better zooming capability for some special outting/event. My price range is open, since I am willing to pay whatever it takes to get the best pics I can of my kids. But, to help you help me, let's say anywhere between $400 to around $1000. Can you help.... PLEASE???
Thanks in advance for your advice!!
